Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library

Whenever it’s safe to put away the snow shovels and get out the gardening spades, the Bay Library has the resources you need to get started. Come in and check out some gardening books, home repair, and the perfect book or music to listen to while you get it done. Don’t forget to stop in the children’s area for spring books and to pick up a flyer detailing upcoming programs. We have a variety of programs for all ages to get everyone out of the house and having fun. Please plan on attending these programs and be sure to make the library a stop on your daily errands. We look forward to seeing you!
